What does it mean in the Apostle’s Creed when it states that Jesus “descended into hell”? I’ve heard several explanations 1) Jesus was in the tomb for 3 days and nothing more, 2) Jesus actually descended into the place of eternal damnation, and 3) Jesus went to be with all those saintly people who had died and were waiting for Jesus to open Heaven (Limbo if you will). What was the purpose of this?
Thanks and God Bless You,
